Facts:
  • A silly backwards story of the old classic in which the mad scientist drinks a potion that makes himself cool instead of a monster. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Dr. Heckyll works late at the laboratory
    Where things are not as they seem
    Dr. Heckyll wishes nothing more desperately
    Than to fulfill all of his dreams
    Letting loose with a scream in the dead of night
    As he's breaking new ground
    Trying his best to unlock all the secrets
    But he's not sure what he's found
    Dr. Heckyll is his own little guinea pig
    'Cos they all think he's mad
    Sets his sights on the search of a lifetime
    And he's never, never sad

    Whoa oh, it's off to work he goes
    In the name of science and all its wonders....

    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    They are a person who feels good to be alive
    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    Believes the underdog will eventually survive

    Not long now till the ultimate experiment
    He's breaking all the rules
    He wants to cure all matter of imbalance
    In this world of fools
    He locks the door and he looks around nervously
    He knows there's no one there
    He drinks it down and waits for some reaction
    To all his work and care

    Hey, hey he fumbles for what to say
    He loves the world except for all the people....

    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    They are a person who feels good to be alive
    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    Believes the underdog will eventually survive

    Whoa oh, it's out at night he goes
    He slips easily into conversation

    Hey hey, he's cool in every way
    Sometimes he loves to sing that old black magic

    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    They are a person who feels good to be alive
    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    Believes the underdog will eventually survive

    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    They are a person who feels good to be alive
    This is the story of Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive
    Believes the underdog will eventually survive
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
